Introducing the newest member of the Dawnus Team "Fly" - a second generation Dawnus Field Spaniel from my homebred girl Dare (Ch Dawnus Always Dare to Dream ET WPD) and the lovely JB (Ch Fieldspan Ina Class of his Own).
With an outgoing personality making friends wherever she goes coupled with a classic Field Spaniel head, lovely spring of rib and moderate angulation she is sure to make an impact on the breed. Bred down from Australia's only endurance titled Field Spaniels we hope she will continue if their footsteps in both the show ring and the performance arenas.
Fly becomes the second Field Spaniel in the world to earn her Working Pack Dog title - the first being her mother. This sport involves hiking 4 x 16km legs each time carrying 30% of her bodyweight. A huge achievement for this very fit young bitch.
Fly is currently the only Field Spaniel in Australia competing in Flyball - she is a member of the Norwest Thunderdogs. I believe she is the first Field Spaniel in Australia to earn a flyball title. Fly's team Thunderdogs 7 won the National Championship for Division 9 at the 2022 Nationals.
Fly starts her showing career with a bang taking out a lovely Baby in Group at Camden Show Society at just 3 months old
Baby of Breed winner at Sydney Royal 2018
Australian Championship gained at just 7 months old.
